St John is a working Order of Chivalry and a modern organisation delivering first aid, health care and support services around the world. The International Secretariat of the Order – called St John International – is the supporting body for St John organisations. We are providing support services, based on individual assessments of the current activities and needs of our local organisation.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a serious impact on St John. It has changed how we reach the most vulnerable people, who depend on our help. Although we do all we can to continue our crucial health services in Malawi, Zambia and other developing countries, without proper personal protection (PPE) for our staff and volunteers, we will not be able to do so.
